Hi, Fahim,

Lovely!

I think that perhaps the first German phrase I learned (and I'm not sure why) was mit schlag (a metaphor alluding, in fact, to whipped cream).

Best regards,

Doug

I'd love a tad of backlight to shape the cream but then coffee, cream and chocolate is already more than enough!

Fahim Mohammed: With cream please...


Doug,

You ask about the "foam". To the right in your picture, there's what appeared to me to be a grande cup of coffee with a giant floating mound of whipped cream foam decorated with chocolate syrup!

Trompe-l'il, it's just an illusion. Fahim chose the title ,"With Cream Please.." My brain then parsed and fit the shape in the shadows to fit that expectation and it did that with aplomb! On review, I suspect that this is instead a plant.

Asher
